Following weeks of speculations and negotiations, Manchester United have announced the signing of Brazilian left-back Alex Telles from FC Porto, for a fee of £15.4m.
The 27-year old put pen to paper signing a four year deal with United, with the option of a further year.
His arrival makes him United second summer signing, following the arrival of Dutch midfielder Van de Beek from Ajax.
The Brazilian international joined Porto from Galatasaray in 2016 and went on to win two Portuguese league titles and the Portuguese Cup in nearly 200 appearances for the club.
“To join a club with the prestige of Manchester United is a huge honour,” said Telles.
“You have to work hard to get to this moment in your career and now I am coming to this club, I can promise that I will give everything in my heart to be a success here.
“I won many trophies at FC Porto and I want to continue that at United. The manager has a clear plan and direction for this team and I can’t wait to pull on the famous shirt.”
Speaking on the club’s new signing, was Manchester United’s boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian manager said;
“He is a player we have been tracking for some time and his performances over the past few years are exactly what we are looking for.
“He is a fighter and a winner and will add real determination and competition to the squad.
“Alex has the qualities, both as a player and as a person, that we want here at Manchester United.”
